Wyoming Student Loans
The state of Wyoming is one of the only states in
America that offers its students no state aid for college.
Instead, students must rely on federal and private loans
along with any grants or scholarships they receive to fund
their academic career. Here is a brief overview or the
different programs available to students.
Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant Program offers financial funding to
undergraduate students. Eligibility is based on the
student’s financial needs and other personal criteria.
Students can be awarded up to $4,310 a year based on their
financial situation and the number of credit hours they are
Wyoming Federal Stafford Loan Program
A federal loan taken out by the student, a Federal Stafford
Loan can be used to pay for costs related to school that are
not covered by scholarships and grants. To qualify for a
Stafford loan, the student has to be enrolled at least
half-time. Repayment of the loan begins six months after the
student graduates or leaves college.
Stafford Loans come in two types – subsidized and
unsubsidized. Subsidized loans are awarded dependent on the
financial need of the borrower. Students enrolled at least
half-time are not charged interest if they have a subsidized
loan. Interest is also not charged during deferment periods
and grace periods. Unsubsidized loans are different in that
they do accrue interest. These loans are also not based on
financial need and interest is always charged – even during
grace periods and deferment periods. Federal Stafford Loans
can total more than $20,000 annually based on the borrower’s
dependency status and grade level.
